Ankes Exerzitienreis – a JEV-classic


Years ago I worked as a volunteer – where we also had retreats for the volunteers. For these occasions, Anke, an ex-volunteer, made the meals for us – and one of the dishes became a real JEV-classic.

As I cooked 2 weeks together with Anke for the volunteers (also years ago… but less years), when I already was an ex-volunteer, too (oh, my story is getting complicated. Never mind. It’s probably important only to myself…), I learned how to prepare it.

For one person you need:

1/2 cup of brown rice (125 ml)
1,25 cups of water (325 ml)

1/2 leek
1 carrot
1-2 tsp curry
1 handful of raisins
1 handful of peanuts (those cheap canned peanuts which are toasted and salted)
1 generous tblsp of oil or margarine

Bring rice and water to a boil in a covered pot. Lower the heat, let simmer for about 40 minutes until the rice is done and the liquid absorbed.

While the rice is cooking, chop the leek and the carrots. Sauté in oil/margarine until done (just to the consistency you wish), add the curry powder. Be generous ;-)
Add the rice to this mix, season with salt, pepper, and curry.

Rinse the raisins and the peanuts with water, add them to the rice, and you’re done!

I like this dish also, when it’s cold, so it’s perfect bento-food!
